Well folks… things aren’t looking good weight-loss-wise 😦 The last four weeks I have gone up and down and up pretty much leaving me exactly where I was one month ago. So, this week I reached my 8th month mark and my weight loss is at nearly 52 lb. (~2 lb. less than last month). This makes this month, officially my worst; it also means that there is a slim-to-none chance of winning my monthly bet on dietbet. Weigh-in is tomorrow and tuesday (you get 48 hours to submit your weight). I very much doubt I will make it.
I must remember this…
On a more positive note, I went to Washington DC this week and had a great time walking through the city. I went to the Holocaust Museum and Lincoln Memorial. Instead of taking the bus or driving around, my mother and I decided to walk. It was quite the workout. We walked about 10 miles in about 5 hours just touring. It was a good day. Along the way we saw many statues and plazas of Latin-American historical figures including Venezuela’s liberator Simon Bolivar, and novelists Romulo Gallegos and Teresa De La Parra. I admit I felt a little proud to see them recognized. In the middle of everything happening in Venezuela right now, it is good to be reminded that we can’t lose hope.
Quotes I Picked Up This Week
Yesterday and today I didn’t go to the gym. Yesterday, I went to my local consignment store to participate in a charity where I spent $10 and got a big bag of clothes. Most of the clothes are too small but I got two skirts for the spring/summer and simply had a fabulous time. Then today, I did some local tourism and took a stroll through the Robert Mills House (the house that never became a home). I was planning to go to the gym afterwards but allergies attacked and instead had to go home. I stopped at some local stores to pick up some goodies for my foodie penpal and I’m happy to say that the package is almost ready.
I have made absolutely no progress on my books and must put them all down and pick up Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt for my upcoming book club meeting. This I must read. I got a pretty good exercise schedule for next week and must be careful with what I eat if I want to get out of this plateau or whatever it is. I’m also working on my A to Z Blog Challenge and will be blogging letters F-K (this should be fun).
